"Narcissistic Putin" – Lauterbach on Russia's war in Ukraine and Covid-19

The German Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, has warned that the corona crisis is not over yet, despite the falling number of infections. At the beginning of the press conference in Berlin, the doctor criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine – in the middle of the pandemic.

Lauterbach said: "The world really has better things to do than deal with Putin's great-power fantasies. We have to fight climate change, we have to fight the pandemic, we have to prevent new pandemics. I just find it, quite frankly, disturbing narcissistic and unacceptable in any way. And I feel especially sorry for the children who are suffering in Ukraine these days, the children whose childhood is interrupted."

In view of 200 to 300 deaths from Covid-19 per day, Lauterbach warned the prime ministers of the German federal states against excessive easing in March – the health minister fears further waves of the corona pandemic in autumn.

This Friday, the Robert Koch Institute reported 226 more deaths in the past 24 hours – but not the numbers from Rhineland-Palatinate. The 7-day incidence in Germany on February 25, 2022 was 1259.5.

The health minister is still concerned about the high number of unvaccinated people over the age of 60. Because of you, Germany has to go its own way, explained Lauterbach.
